This book provides readers with a timely guide to the application of biomimetic principles in architecture and engineering
design, and describes various aspects of motion in living systems. Geometric, mechanical and rhythmic parameters are listed
and illustrated using examples from flora and fauna, and contextualized within an integrated mapping of biomechanical combinations
that have proved their success in the course of evolution. For designers, the schemes identify those aspects that have a high
probability of being efficiently combined, paving the way for new solutions and offering a method of evolutionary problem
solving. The book guides readers through the field of nature-inspired design, offering an extraordinary resource for professional
architects, engineers and designers, as well as for researchers and students. Throughout the book, natural evolution is approached
as a powerful resource that can enrich architecture and design by providing innovative, optimal and sustainable solutions.
